The influential rapper is responsible for some of the most beloved hip-hop albums of all-time, including Mm.. Food and Madvillainy with Madlib. While he hadn’t released a solo album since 2009’s Born Like This, he remained active in the decade that followed and released three separate collaborative efforts. Just earlier this month, BADBADNOTGOOD released a collaboration with DOOM entitled “The Chocolate Conquistadors.” – Complex
His death was not revealed until today. According to his wife, Doom died on October 31, 2020.
Legendary rapper MF DOOM has died age 49, his family confirmed in a statement Thursday.
“The greatest husband, father, teacher, student, business partner, lover and friend I could ever ask for,” DOOM’s wife Jasmine wrote in the caption of an Instagram post depicting her late husband. “Thank you for all the things you have shown, taught and given to me, our children and our family. Thank you for teaching me how to forgive beings and give another chance, not to be so quick to judge and write off. Thank you for showing how not to be afraid to love and be the best person I could ever be.”
The statement continues, “My world will never be the same without you. Words will never express what you and Malachi mean to me, I love both and adore you always. May THE ALL continue to bless you, our family and the planet.”–
